At a Glance

In the 1920s, the National Forest Service built the Madison Ranger Station buildings that housed many of the men and women who oversaw the administration of forest lands. The recently moved buildings continue to serve as the hub of the National Smokejumper Center, educating people about the proud history of smokejumpers and fostering wildlands stewardship. Help honor the legacy of these brave firefighters by upgrading and preserving the Madison Ranger Station buildings and landscaping the new grounds of the National Smokejumper Center.
